it's time to stand UP...

Taken from Facebook entry of Thursday, February 12, 2009

A note to all Americans:

We are living in a time of crisis unparalleled for our generation. Our country is falling apart financially. We are involved in two wars that seemingly have no end.

It is of great import that we unite with the ideal that we are going to do what is best for our country, what is best for our children, what is best for the future. If we do not, we will face dire consequences. Regardless of political affiliation, now is the time to stand up and say the Pledge of Allegience, remembering that we are ONE nation, under God, INDIVISIBLE, with liberty (freedom) and justice for ALL.

Let us unite behind our President, not as a man, but as the President of the United States of America. Let us realize TOGETHER our future, let us PUT ASIDE our differences. May we lay down our weapons, and pick up our rakes and hoes, roll up our sleeves, and GET TO WORK.

This means change...The old adage "change is hard," could never be truer. We are definitely faced with difficult days, difficult change is ahead of us. Nobody said it was going to be easy. The truth is, it's going to be hard work..if we choose to do it.

The real beauty in all of this is that we do indeed have a choice. As Free Americans, we can choose to do nothing. We can choose to stand Divided. We can choose to Stand In the Way. We can choose to Stand Up and Unite Despite our Differences, laying aside those things that tear us apart and embracing those things which bring us together.

If we do nothing, if we continue to be divided...our country will most definitely continue to suffer. What will this lead to? Stop for a moment and imagine a USA with 15% unemployment...or even more. The unemployed can't afford to pay for their COBRA insurance, so many of them are going without the medication they need to stay healthy. Some are dying. Others have children they can't afford to feed nutritional meals...oh, they can feed them, but not the things that will help them grow strong and healthy. So these kids are malnourished and suffering from illnesses like rickets and anemia.

In this USA, we have food riots, we have people living without running water and without electricity and without phone because they can't afford to pay the bills associated with such luxuries. Still others have moved their families into cars, and the have become the vagabonds of 21st century America...the hobos of today. Homeless shelters are overflowing, and people in warmer climates resort to living in tents, living off the land, squatting on land they don't own. The longer this continues, the more desperate the poor become. Make no mistake...just because they are desperately poor doesn't mean they are desperately weak. Yes...there will be blood.

Is this the future you want to face JUST AROUND THE CORNER? We are SO CLOSE to collapsing, to reverting back to what we fought to overcome. Remember the Pledge...Freedom and Justice for ALL. We are the UNITED States of America. Let us UNITE.

Let our leader lead.
